This is late but are you aware of the new battletech computer game coming out? It looks to be a very faithful to battletech and the mechcommander series which I love.

I have. I am confident mu computer will not be able to run it.

Ok, I know that you have all been waiting to know how things went today for my birthday. I did go out. We started off at the MAC counter for makeup. The lady was so nice and understanding. We then went to downtown Seattle to eat. We went to a diner. The server was sweet and treated me as a person. At no point did I feel uncomfortable. We then did the Escape Room. We didn't do well, but we had a blast! Then, instead of going home as originally planned, I asked if we could go to Pike Place Market because I wanted to buy some jelly. They have a strawberry/California reaper jelly that is just amazing! So we wandered around for a bit. I interacted with people. I felt so comfortable with my A-Team. They were so supportive. One of them made me peanut butter cookies too! They are one of the few cookies I can eat that I enjoy.

I think we walked 3 to 4 miles. I'm going to sleep so well tonight.

All-in-all, I had one of the best birthdays I've ever had and it's only the second one I got to experience as Cindy, the only one out of the house. I am so glad that I did this. If any of you want to join the Adventures of Cindy on Facebook and we aren't already friends, you are more than welcome to send me a message.

Thank you all for your support. It really means the world to me. I don't think I would have done this without the support of my friends.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO PARTY HARD

NOTE: this does not mean stare through the pinhole. Use the paper as a projector to observe the eclipse on another surface (like a second blank piece of paper).

We got some new glasses at the site, it was ok.
AND IT WAS SO COOL!!!!!!! (Literally too, it got colder :)
The corona is absolutely beautiful, and the horizon looks like a sunset in all directions at once. Definitely felt like a lot less than 2.5 minutes. :)

*nods*

Lots of people in the parking lot in front of work (I'm in Cleveland, TN, so basically ground central for best viewing) was sharing their glasses so everyone could see, it was really nice ^w^

Hubby and I went the cereal box pinhole projector route - good thing I had a hankering for cereal last week! :D I was actually surprised at how well it worked, too, for something so simple. We were in an area that only got about 92% coverage at peak, but it was still neat to watch. And we totally got the temperature drop, too, and some drop in lighting (though it obviously wasn't nearly so dramatic).

The temperature drop was I think my favorite part of it, it and the darkness just made everything feel so surreal ^w^

Not I. I've got enough problems as it is. Stayed indoors all day.

In case I haven't said it before, Happy Birthday, Cindy.

The next eclipse in seven years passes through Tennessee also, I think. If not, then close to it.

This feels like something I should cross-post over to here:

I'm loving that title :D

I'm in a bariatric weight loss group on Facebook with over 5000 members. I can't believe all the support I get from places I would never have expected to see it. Many people in the South have gone out of their way to support me and tell me where they are from.

I'm finding out that even though I'm not going to be accepted by everyone, there are many out there who are either going to support me or just let me be who I am. I'm still scared, but I think it's going to get better sooner than I expected.

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. I really do appreciate it.

Read through it, had some interesting concepts that required me to sit back and percolate the thoughts on it. Other species, other humans from more primative, or more advanced times, wouldn't really be able to hold conversations on self-identification as modern folk would. It's almost a perfect topic for your sci-fi Risus campaign to have a few nights discussing, or being a theme to some over-arching campaign.

Wasn't finding myself offended or assaulted, either. As I ID myself as Christian conservative straight Italian-Irish, I found the topic to be pretty much like any you would find once the trollbegone spray was used. Good reading material.

Good morning, everyone.


good morning

bllllluuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhh


Under the weather?


Definitely. Had some bad nachos last night. Local Mexican restaurant has the best chicken nachos, but something about last night's was just... off. Wife had a plate and she's having the same problems.

Plus I'm massively overworked, so that sucks too.


Sounds like a case of food poisoning. Maybe the chicken was under cooked, or had simply gone bad. What are you taking for it?


Eh, just letting it run its course and drinking plenty of water to rehydrate. Doesn't seem like it's going to worsen or anything, so that should be all.


When I get sick like that, I find that drinking warm Ginger Ale helps. Get Tom Tucker's Mint Ginger Ale if you can find it.


I feel that I should start by saying that I have nothing but respect for the LGBTQA community. However, the list is growing and shows no signs of stopping. I just wish that there was a shorter way to address the community respectfully. The term LGBTQA is growing to the point that it is starting to bug me. I do not wish to leave anyone out, though. Thus I propose we try and think of a new encompassing term. I would offer suggestions, but all I can think of a nonsense words.


QUILTBAG is my favorite acronym variation.

For many of those who accept it's been redeemed, "queer" has become an encompassing term.


I like QUILTBAG, thanks.

As a friend of mine joked a lifetime ago, welcome to the TARDIS, and don't mind that glow coming off your hands.
